'Le Vieil Arbre' is a unique oil painting by the Dutch artist, Maarten Vrolijk.

Enthralled by flowers and the power of nature, Vrolijk’s vibrant and joyous paintings are applied layer over layer, creating a richness and depth within his oil paint. He is not gripped by a desire to imitate the real world, more that he is on a quest to create a fresh image by adding more to what already exists, where fascination becomes real and visible, captured within his brush strokes. He sees his paintings as having an abstract power that is above and beyond simply copying the flowers and natural forms that were their initial inspiration.
